The new owners of a two-story, three-family house at 44 Ellery St. in South Boston's Andrew Square have filed plans to replace it with a six-story,18-unit condo building.

In a filing with the BPDA last week, Malcolm Barber and Niall Dowdall, said the project, a short walk from the Andrew Square T stop, would have six parking spaces.

Three of the condos would be sold as affordable.

They paid $2.6 million for the building last month and say construction will cost $7 million. They hope to begin construction in mid-2022, with completion scheduled for the end of 2023.

Their filing describes the design:

Contextually, the proposed six-story building takes its design cues from new residential and mixed-use projects near the project site, including multi-story multi-family buildings currently under construction or recently completed or approved; to wit: buildings setback from the street 10-15 feet, providing increased public realm area; multiple units facing the street (symbolized by bay windows),and either commercial space or garages at the ground floor. The proposed building’s interface with the public realm is celebrated with a landscaped front yard dotted with street trees. The private realm, quantified by usable open space, consists of dedicated balconies and roof decks.
